Dedication

Rating: 3.0
I have great faith in all things not yet spoken.
I want my deepest pious feelings freed.
What no one yet has dared to risk and warrant
will be for me a challenge I must meet.

If this presumptious seems, God, may I be forgiven.
For what I want to say to you is this:
my efforts shall be like a driving force,
quite without anger, without timidness
as little children show their love for you.

This is so beautiful.'What no one yet has dared to risk and warrant will be for me a challenge I must meet.' What a manifesto! Rilke puts in words what we all felt one time in life.
